Truly we are not. We pay more than minimum wage, start on benefits on day one instead of six months, provide private room with bath, electricity and running water. Their beds have clean mattresses.
Most people that have worked for us (including Dominic Ibu and Waysan) come from homes of lesser quality than the most recent chicken coop we built and had to pump water from a communal well to carry home.
The work day is 6am to 5pm. They get a 30 minute breakfast two hour lunch and 30 minute lunch. As live in gardeners the law requires just 8 hours off a day. Our guys work eight hours only.
The problem of finding good staff is not uncommon. Everyone we know has the same issues. They will lose gardeners or house keepers every three weeks and then keep one for eight years.
Mrs Oz does not want local people because they would quit just the same. Then one night when they are drunk they could return an capitalize on the weaknesses in security we may have and rob the place or worse.
At least if they are broke and drunk an live a distance away, they can't afford the bus fare to ride here to invade.
